SHERWICK

How To Make Quince Jam Or Jelly?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know please?

The Internet may provide the answer, Mr Sherwick! that is just so Elizabethan of you :blink:! Not a popular fruit nowadays! When I was a young bloke the neighbours had a quince tree. I have never seen one since.

This is what I done, but make sure you actually reach the jell point or you end up with hawthorn sauce :unsure:

Also, that recipe understates the amount of water needed. It needs to be wet enough that water can drip out.

Edit - there's also no needs to remove stalks etc. Just bung everything in.

I have a quince tree! A beautiful tree in its own right as well as providing a bounty of fruit.

That's what you think! This is the back end of the Internet, where the unwise exchange strange rumours! ;)

Frank won't be your husband now, if you can't make quince jelly. ;)

I made quince jelly once but I think I got the recipe from a book & not from the internet. I found it pretty easy - quinces are quite high in pectin (as long as they are not overripe) so the jelly set well. I also have a juice extractor which made things easier. I'll try to find the recipe tonight (if I remember)

Quince Jelly

4lbs quinces

6 pints water

sugar.

-wash and chop fruit roughly

-place in a large pan with 5 pints of water

-cover and simmer over low heat until soft, about an hour

-when soft, press fruit with the back of a spoon or mash slightly

-ladle fruit and juice into a muslin cloth or jelly bag and leave to drip for 30 mins

-remove pulp from bag and return to pan with the other pint of water, simmer for 30 mins

-strain a second time

-measure all the juice into clean pan and for every pint of juice add 1lb of granulated sugar

-cook over a low heat stirring until all sugar dissolved, then bring to the boil and boil rapidly until setting point is reached about 15 to 20 mins or until temperature reached 105c / 220f

-skim scum from surface leave to cool for a few mins, pour into sterilised jars

When quinces ripen they can lose some of their pectin (setting quality) so if ripe a bit of lemon juice can be added along with the water, optional. ;)

Yes you can! It is fun, and it makes all the the clothes fall of the kvinnen, as they say in Norsk land! :blink:

Really, give it a go.

Its one of the most rewardingly creative things you can do and its mostly hands-off work. Plus you dont have to peel, core, or in any way prepare the fruit.

Chuck it in. Boil it. Strain it. Boil it.

Job done!

Making jam is a pain in the neck but well worth it.

Have just thrown a pudding together with a very thin hge wrap, grated apple and blackberry jam.

Maybe. There is always a risk in this rainy weather that inot enough allotmentng gets done to work off calories...

It's the ice cream with strawberry jam that'd burst the calorie limit though :)
